Northwood Public House and Brewery

Kochab the Guardian

When we named The Little Dipper Brewing Company we set out to find beer names that related to that constellation. One of our inaugural beers was called Kochab the Guardian after the one of the original North stars (yes there used to be two in ancient times) in the Little Dipper. Then we met artist and musician Janet Julien and started collecting her work for the walls of Northwood. All along the north wall of the dining room we've slowly added her beautiful folk art paintings. Her most recent addition is her vision of Kochab. He's kind of a lumberjack wizard, with starshine on his hat and in the little dipper he holds in his hand. We hope you agree that he's another fabulous addition to our collection. Look for him next time you're in. He'll be floating around in different places for a while until we get him permanently installed on the wall.
